Hi and welcome to Coffee with Claire!
Today’s theme is going to be about resilience.
The definition of resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
At the beginning of anything new, there’s always excitement and an adrenaline rush as you build that something that has never been built before.
You figure it out, you put processes together, and pretty soon, you have a well-oiled machine that you understand and know you can depend on.
Then, one day, you hit a snag–something completely unexpected, and out of your control. Everything you worked for is suddenly gone. You’re left standing at a crossroads. Which road do you choose?
Path #1 is easy. You quit. You throw in the towel. You decide that the thing that happened was a sign that you weren’t supposed to do it anymore anyways.
Path #2 is you pick yourself up, gather the pieces you can find, and re-invent and re-create those that you can’t. It takes time and it takes money that you didn’t think you had, but you find ways to make it work.
Not everyone will pick Path #2. It may not be feasible. But those who are successful know there’s going to be up’s and downs. You’re never 100% right, or profitable, or marketable or whatever other adjective you want to inject. However, it’s the people who have resilience in their blood that are willing to try again. Maybe do it a little differently this next time around, but it’s definitely worth it in their minds.
The resilience I am speaking about specifically is Coffee with Claire, and how I came to the conclusion that just because we hit a major bump in the road didn’t mean we veered off the road, took the wheels off the bus, and walked home. Would it have been easy? Sure. But I wasn’t done, and I wasn’t going to give up.

The first in a series we call “What If?” In this episode, we discover what you really need to know about insurance. Our guest, John Allen, is president and managing agent with Community Insurance Advisors. John’s mission is to set a new standard for the insurance industry. Here John walks us through a thought process of how we should engage an agent and get the most from our insurance policies. While many people buy insurance on price (whether it be for the house, car or business), most of us really have no idea what our policies cover. John clearly describes “all-risk” versus “named-perils” coverage, water endorsements and the difference between replacement and ACV (depreciated) claims settlements.
John has leveraged his passion for people and his attention to detail to grow an insurance business that is a true advocate for his clients.”Post Views: 732
“Laughter is the best medicine.”
So, what if you combined it with the principals of yoga? Where would that take you?
Claire has had great success with a program called Laughter Yoga. She’s used it with teachers starting their school year, airline employees before busy season starts and with corporate executives looking to relieve stress. Laughter yoga was made popular as an exercise routine developed by Indian physician Madan Kataria, who writes about the practice in his 2002 book Laugh For No Reason. Claire has gleaned the best practices of this foundation idea and shaped into her own program.
The idea of forced laughter to help drive away the blues or negative thoughts or just refresh your mind really works. Claire’s most recent experience is with a family wanting to have a positive start and ongoing support during the school year. Each Sunday Claire meets with them and, using the principles of laughter yoga, gets their week off to a positive and fresh start. They also find themselves using the techniques during the week.
